Monday Random: love and hate list

It’s time for a little transparency:

I hate:

  1. people being mean, especially to the defenseless
  2. reading ‘teh’ for the
  3. your instead of ‘you’re’
  4. ‘bitch’ becoming part of the vernacular
  5. judging and dismissing based on the body or face
  6. milk
  7. beets
  8. honey
  9. hot, humid days
  10. socks with holes

I love:

  1. humble people who listen
  2. words
  3. music
  4. poets- crazy, strange, and wonderful people
  5. chocolate
  6. coffee
  7. every vegetable and fruit except beets. I eye artichokes and okra warily
  8. pasta
  9. Bill Murray
  10. cool, rainy days

I wish:

  • I spent more time listening when my kids were kids
  • there were less 1-strike-you’re-out people and more listeners
  • spring followed autumn
  • you weren’t so far away, you know who you are
  • the wrong people would leave me be and the right people would see how time is slipping away
  • honey didn’t taste so bad because I seem to be the only one in the world that hates it
  • Kurt Cobain and Robin Williams didn’t give up
  • we could sell laughter for currency
  • Orson Welles lived now, still making films
  • no one was hungry

A song about love and hate:

Another song about hate with a bit of revenge and suffering:

I know, I hear you saying it- ‘be positive’. Hey we all have feelings of anger and it’s not good to keep this stuff bottled up. But for those of you about to click away, here is something sweet about real love:

Here’s another, from the male perspective:

And one more, this sweet little song I remember from my youth:


Have a good rest of your Monday and a great week-

  1. We have much in common! And funny, I too love all veggies except for beets! (And have some reservations about okra.) But beet greens are fine. Go figure. Enjoyed reading this – especially your words about poets. So true. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’•


  2. LOVE your lists – but really……… who hates honey??!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Beets – I understand – though I love them – but honey??? I was thinking about it the whole time I was reading- and then got to your “I wish” list and laughed. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I love your lists. (That typoed as “lusts” the first time–thanks for the catch autocorrect. ) I’m right there with you on beets. They taste like a mouthful of dirt. But honey? Ah well.


    1. The worst- I tend to wiggle my toes almost constantly and one of them always gets wedged in that hole.

      I heard once about a celebrity, I think it was Jerry Lewis, who opened a new pair of socks every time and threw the rest away. I don’t think I could throw them away, it would hurt my frugal side, but I loved the thought of fresh cotton socks every day or three times a day which is how often I change my socks.

      p.s. at first I wrote ‘fresh cotton sex’. I have no idea what that is but it sounds good
